A knight in his mid forties with an evil countenance, Sir Grachius is a forbidding figure dressed in magnificent fullplate and carrying the finest weapons.
A powerful lord of the Chelaxian house Henderthane, Sir Grachius is rumoured to be a Hell-Knight. He denies this with some force and says he wishes to enter the tourney to prove his honour and to show the superiority of House Henderthanes weaponry.
He is offering to supply magical arms and armour to the kingdom in a deal that is probably too good to be true. To refuse him entry into the events would insult this powerful Chelaxian noble house.
